Oh my goodness!

Our beautiful river park looks like a bomb has exploded in it

This is the entrance to the park

The water was so deep over this area that the grass and gas BBQ was left in place, while trees and infrastructure was wiped out.

This is all that is left of our wonderful picnic spots

Colleges Crossing was under 2m of mud, volunteers cleared and cleaned it. The water is still very high, because there are huge trees underneath blocking the flow of water.

 Elizabeth and I went out for a drive as the sun set last night, we joined hundreds of residents exploring the park. The shock and sadness felt by everyone was palpable, so much devastation.

Total devastation for sure, I can't even begin to imagine what everyone is going through there. My heart goes out to you all.
